Another place that has been a critical part of southern history are the Carolinas. The name Caroline is one of the most popular girls names for a special place in the south. The name actually means manly. This is not what I would choose for a meaning for my baby girl’s name. I just hate the American meaning of the name. I can’t help it, who wants to tell their daughter that she is “manly?”
As you might have noticed, on of the biggest trends with southern names is using a double name. This has been popular in the south for a long time and is something that everyone really loves and enjoys.
